Where do you guys go to get sheet metal? I need a little bit of it for a project I'm working on as well as to patch a few holes in the Omega. I used to snag it from my uncle but he sold his business and retired, now I'm going to have to go through proper channels. Any help would be appreciated.

What gauge?
Unfortunately I use mostly 14(.080) & 11 (.12) which is to thick for most fixes.
Might have some lighter gauge around
I'm 2 minutes North of logan airport. Call if you want I'll check it in the Am

Most race shops will usually have 4x8 sheets of 24ga or 22ga in stock. Unfortunately, I don't know of any in MA.

Like Bill said, Home Depot or Lowes usually have smaller pieces in stock.

I just need a few scraps about 6"x6" and a piece about a foot and a half by 6" or so. I'll try getting a sheet from home depot or maybe hit up a steel shop near me and see if I can raid their scrap pile.
